Luke Combs really is one of the most genuine guys in the business.
Aside from being an absolute superstar in country music, he’s as humble and good-hearted as they come. He recently stepped up and quietly paid the funeral expenses of the three young men who tragically passed away at the Faster Horses Festival in Michigan, and today, he’s stepping up again.
After Kelly Kirk, a Kindergarten teacher at a Title I school in North Carolina (which means the poverty level is 75% or higher among students that attend the school) reached out to see if Luke would help her with any of the supplies on her list, he went ahead and cleared out the whole dang thing.
What a guy.
She had an Amazon classroom wish list up for school supplies she felt were necessary for her incoming group of kindergarteners, and posted the link along with a quick explanation on Twitter and tagged him:
“Hi @lukecombs! I wanted to reach out and see if you wanted to support an Appalachian Alumni with her teacher Amazon wishlist! I teach kindergarten in NC and could use some help with #clearthelist. Appreciate the support!”
It probably helped a little bit that he attended Appalachian State as well and is still a massive fan, and he also got his start playing in little dives and bars around the small town of Boone (where it’s located), similar to Eric Church.
As an App State alumni myself, it makes me so happy to see stuff like this. I’m pretty proud of the way he represents not only all of us Mountaineers, but everybody in country music, too:
“Cleared it for ya. Good luck to your students and GO APPS!”
I’m counting down the days until that first tailgate and crisp fall air, but until then, kick back and enjoy one of my personal favorite videos from the 2019 college football season (and yes, I’m extremely biased).
